We present a design approach that converts Petri net models into their equivalent fuzzy sets for the design of discrete event controllers. The Petri Net model of a discrete event controller is captured and modeled using DesignCPN software. DesignCPN  used ColouredPetri Nets (CPN)  in model representation. Fuzzy sets generated in our conversion process are compatible with Xfuzzy software, which is fuzzy logic software for controllers design. Xfuzzy  uses a language called XFL to define fuzzy systems. Different algorithms of conversion have been implemented together with some parsers that are useful in our conversion process. The central issue of this work is to implement discrete event controllers using crisp membership functions by developing a software modulke that links DesignCPN and Xfuzzy.....
